Skateboarders often call there own sport an "extreme
" sport, when there is nothing extreme
about it. When your walking up town and you see someone skateboarding
nine times out of ten all you see them do is push themselves around on a piece of wood and fall. They attemt tricks that are not even at great hieghts or great speed. They will generally fall which results in a lot of bitching
. The occasional throwing of a chunk of wood around as if they land that trick all the time
with there eyes closed. Lots of time you will see them jump and spin there board out of control as if it is a trick. Also,when is the last time you've ever seen a skateboarder
doing something life-threatening? They can say that stupid "mega-ramp" thing all they want but even a unicycle could jump that high if you gave it a big enough ramp. I'm tired of them saying that there "sport" is the best sport out there and nothing
else compares to it, when in fact there wrong. It puzzles me that out of all the extreme
, is the most popular
. My guess is that very few have the balls to try something dangerous/creative
like blading, BMX, and others. Skateboarding
is just for those who can't do anyhthing big so instead they just spin around there piece of wood a foot off the ground and call that the greatest sport?
"Hey look at that hunk of shit rolling
towards us, oh no wait thats just a pack of skateboarders"
